Wet Walk. Pain.

The council rang the water board,
who came to draw a blue line around the offending stop cock. Hurrah!

I've posted this house before. It was repossessed in June and is now for sale HERE for £60K. That's half the price of the houses around here. Someone will make a killing, and only 2 minutes walk from us.

Broken Factory windows.

There's something sad about that.

I walked to Morisson's today. Despite falling over and getting covered in mud, and then being almost in tears because the dogs pulled so much it twisted my hip, And the lead broke, it was a pleasant walk despite the weather. A shame that i had to repeat it half an hour later (this time on the bicycle) to get some willow cuttings off freecycle.

There's a tiny wood opposite Morisson's where I found these mushrooms

One of the other disudes (and torn down) factories.

Poo Bear (who stole an 8 oz prime steak last night) hiding from Kat, and then Hugh, under the coffee table.

Naughty boy! (Let's hope that at least he doesn't get sick for this naughtiness)

I hope not! I'm on poop patrol!

Rachel. I've gone back and read this 3 times. Did you fall again? And you twisted your hip in to the bargain?

Even if you've just twisted your hip - what is going on?

Bad Poo Bear. And he looks it.

I hate the looks of broken factory windows...sad - yawning - desolate.....

I did fall again - the dogs pulled me over on a patch of slippy ground. The hip was from the dogs pulling for so long in conjunction with mt bad leg.

I'm just a bit decrepit at the moment!

Good Lord Girl! Are you okay?

Now - I missed what Freecycle is - can you tell me? I've never heard of it until you mentioned it once before.

Leatherdykeuk said...

I'll be fine, thanks :)

Best look here for freecycle:

So it's not just chicken for Bear? Watch out; he'll begin to discriminate soon!

Do take better care when walking though if you please.

He eats any meat he can get as a change from his gluten-free biscuit diet!

I'm glad it's not just Buster who pinches food!

Rachel, will you please take more care. We bought a harness for Buster and it's much easier to control him and stop him pulling. Perhaps you could try one for Bear?

I did a huge poop hunt this morning. Took ages. Not a pleasant task, but necessary.

Love the blue square and dots round the offending spot! Let's hope something is done about it.

Leatherdykeuk said...

Thanks Gina.
It's not Bear that pulls but Jack and Trickster. I may well try harnesses for them.

I finally looked up freecycle. A lovely idea....does it work well?

We don't have anything like that over here. Free? Things are free? You mean there are people who musn't make a dollar on absolutely everything?! (not related to Harold then!)

You could always start a freecycle group where you live ;)
